uh, ok then
NEW MODEST MOUSE LP!!
I'm genuinely intrigued by this
If Big Boi tweeted 'Been camped out in the Lab with Kanye all week, workin on his LP', I wouldn't assume he was producing it. Not disputing that it may be production work, but even so I doubt he'd be a sole producer a la Dangermouse.
but (a) they don't strike me as a band who do a rapper guest spot and (b) a week is too long for just a guest spot.
they've taken ages with this record. ages. it's over 4yrs since the last one came out, and if they're only recording now it probably won't be out until January next year. all quotes I've seen about them recording a new album seem to suggest a complete lack of inspiration / some kind of creative rut, so maybe this is their way of getting out of it?
CONJECTURE IS FUN
and they need a relevant funk-influenced artist in to fine tune their sound. If they're taking years with the album, spending a week on one song doesn't seem out of step.
Lets wait for more details, I say. In conclusion, very excited to see where this leads.
Now is time shopping at place is super awesome! We are to talking about musics on this site but why not go to super shopping place is good for you! Why talk about music on a musics site, please?!
We have new Radiohead, Air Jordans, Fleet Foxes, Jean, Handbags, Beastie Boys, Sunglasses is cheap OK! Why our customers are be so much? Because DiS is the good shopping place!
Seriously, can we work on this shit, please? It's such a daily asswhip.
We have all registered our displeasure, I'm sure they're doing their best to deal with the problem. Posts moaning about the spam, or doing hilarious impressions of the spam, are as space-wasting as the spam itself.
This isn't meant to be an attack on you Sciflyer - I know you mean no ill intent! I'm just saying it about the board generally. It must be a bit of a bummer for whoever's trying to deal with it to constantly get the opposite of thanks for their work. We all know the spam's there - let's ignore it and get on with enjoying the board.
(I'm aware that there's a latent irony in this post. Ten smug points for whoever identifies it.)
That would be amazing. The maker of my favorite album of last year producing my favorite band. Super excited, if it's true.
I'm really interested on what Big Bois approach to this style of music will be
to dismiss it before you've heard anything is ridiculous.
They're on a run of four great albums and counting (and a pretty good EP most recently). Plus Big Boi is great, whether he's producing or otherwise, will hopefully be a good partnership.
good work, bonehead
Brock really enjoys hip hop and has had hip hop influence in some their songs in the past 'The Fruit That Ate It's Self' 'Heart Cooks The Brain' & 'Bukowski' all have rap and hip hop elements
on account of DiS being broken I have to do this
can't think of anything big boi's been involved in that's been anything less than brilliant.
but his song was the best
EVERYONE LOOK, QUICKLY
So by your reasoning, this will be the best Modest Mouse yet. Excellent.
As I've said, I really doubt this will be a full on Big Boi/Modest Mouse collabo deal, and both artists rarely put a foot wrong, so I'm fairly confident that the output will be quality.
hip-hop beats or raps to the table
i mean, he might but it seems borderline racist to just assume that's all he can do. i think it's fair to say the dude has some serious production credentials and knows what he's doing in the studio, maybe he wants to branch out? either way, pipe down until you've even heard anything.
much of the janelle monae album last year wasn't hip-hop. yet he improved everything he touched. 'oh, maker' especially
To say someone who's spent most of his career rapping and producing hip-hop beats would bring rap and/or hip-hop beats to a project he's involved with? What a bizarre thing to say.
i said to ASSUME that's all he could possibly bring
brightonb wasn't even entertaining the idea that he could do anything else
rather than because he's black. But yeah, who knows!
The fans don't have to worry. There's nothing like, 'Oh, Modest Mouse, there's some rapping going on the album!' If there needs to be some rapping on there, I will destroy it, but right now, we're just really marinating with the music to see where everything's going to go... Just know this motherfucker is jamming, man. Believe me.
Jist: Big Boi says he's a producer on the record and hasn't been rapping on it
is convenient parking not isaac rapping?
i mean arguably not quite, but it's something close to that
